And yes, those of us who criticise this change will be called racist and sexist, because if you speak out against political correctness nowadays then you're automatically branded a neandethal who hates everyone who isn't a straight white male, but anyway:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7244671/Thought-007-never-woman-black-shes-James-Bond-hand-number-over.html

Doctor Who has already been ruined by the change of the Doctor's gender, and now the Bond films are presumably going to fail too, given that the new writer is openly 'feminist' and in favour of change, which sounds like a strategic way of very much understating the changes we'll eventually see when the film comes out.

Bond is Bond because of who he is. Most men want to be him, and most women want to be with him. Most women don't have fantasies about saving the world, driving fast cars better than anyone else, having a license to kill, getting into fights and killing the enemy, etc. And most blokes don't fancy a women who's tougher than they are, who actually goes around killing people, who almost never projects empathy or other 'feminine' virtues, etc.

If the woman '007' has Bond's attributes then she'll be a turn off for both male and female viewers. If she is much more female in her attitude and actions then she won't be 007 at all. Either way it's going to utterly fail. Though the professional reviewers will praise it to the skies, as they have with Doctor Who (even though DW haemorrhaged viewers after the change, and has terrible fan-reviews) because otherwise the reviewers will be called anti-feminist, women-hating neanderthals (even the women reviewers).

Why can't they just leave things as they are with existing I.P.s, and instead invent new I.P.s for new ideas?

Wait... I'm confused... Why are they acting like James Bond himself isn't in the film? The article did clearly state Daniel Craig is playing Bond in the new film—it's just that the agent designated as 007 is now the Bond girl/woman. It sounds like Bond's still around, he's just not the full center of attention anymore. I think the film can be decent if given the chance, it doesn't sound terrible.

But I admit, with the political correctness sprinkled about the article, I do get the feeling it'll manage some eyerolling moments. They probably shouldn't go full on with the agenda-sounding stuff for the first movie in this run. It's likely why the commenters are going off like they are.

Of course, nothing means anything until the movie actually releases. But, I'll be cautiously optimistic this time around.

It might be a good time to make a 007 Woke Hack. Just swap Mayday with Bond and have LGBTQ rainbows all over the place.

I reckon she's going to be awesome - finally there's a Bond that the men want to sleep with!

Seriously though, Bond as it stands is too played out, and the series needs a radical change to keep things fresh and allow writers to create less-stale content. I'd have picked a return to the 50s and a "real spy espionage" Bond but casting a woman is the next best thing. Remember Johanna Dark people Wink

The thing about Perfect Dark (64) was that it wasn't entirely Bond-esque. It starred a spy who saved the world and made one-liners. It didn't have any of the "love" aspects of Bond films and the things that come with that. I am correct in this, yes?

Hm... The only thing I recall some people not liking about PD was the alien conspiracy stuff. But, Rare didn't hype the game up as the next big "Bond" game, did they? Even a news station has said that "Bond is now a black woman?!" I think the movie's getting a lot of undue attention from this misinformative label.
